Much more than just a "Casita": wonderful hosts, outstanding home
"My wife an I enjoyed Semana Santa 2015 in La Casita. The place description is very accurate but you may need to be a novelist to transmit with words what the place and the hosts Joyce and Chan really make you feel.
The property and The Casita are a piece of art, so much welcoming. Joyce and Chan had taken care of every detail but specially the gardens full of Heliconias and all kinds of greens and colorful plants. Their gardener Gilberth is very smart and polite, easily recognizes every plant variety and kindly offers you to take home any "child" plant you like. Maria the maid cooks "gallo pinto" and fresh fruits for you every day. The drive up is only 300 ft, easy for any small or mid-size SUV or pick-up truck when it is dry, although you may need 4x4 if wet. It was a great "home-base" for us to enjoy the near-by Playa Uvita (Whale tale), Playa Ballena Beach Club Villa Leonor and Ojochal fine restaurants, we even took a quick 1-hr drive to Sierpe and enjoy an afternoon river boat tour. Come over and discover more on your own."

"My husband and I have just spent the most relaxing and tranquil two week stay at the Orange House over the Christmas/New Year holiday. Kerstin and Udo are charming and discreet hosts. What they have achieved here, returning what was once relatively barren cattle-ranching land back to an ecologically diverse garden filled with native and non-native plants that attract a variety of birds and insects is a joy to behold. It is a little "Eden"' tucked away up an unpaved road and yes less than five minutes' away from all the amenities of Uvita. The praises received from other reviewers are well-deserved. I, for one, will find every other bathroom - no matter how cutting-edge - mundane and ordinary after experiencing their magnificent outdoor shower and sharing it with the odd visiting bird or gecko! The view from the infinity pool across to the surrounding hills is breathtaking and it is a delight to watch the antics of the birds from there at sunset. Typhoon, the guard dog is the most gentle and well-mannered I have ever met. We had planned to do all sorts of excursions during our stay and yet we hardly left the property, so comfortable did we feel. Attention to detail and a sense of pride in what they have achieved here is evident. If you would like to stay in a beautiful hideaway and yet be close to all the restaurants and other amenities, then this is the place for you. We would love to stay here again. Thanks Kerstin and Udo for sharing your exquisite home with us."

"My wife and i came to Costa Rica to look for property to buy. We stayed in the casita for 3 months. We totally enjoyed it. The view,the wildlife,the jungle was amazing. The casita is close enough to town, yet far away enough for total privacy. It is stocked very well for cooking and the internet works well. We would recommend it to anyone. We found a house next door in Brisas del mar and will be living here soon."
